Have you or your family ever buried a child? It’s difficult to imagine something more heart-breaking or tragic.
Come and see how babies fit and play in the womb.
Marry Fermont, an award-winning birth photographer in the Netherlands, started taking pictures of babies immediately after their birth to document what they look like in utero. Her pictures testify to the humanity of the unborn child and show parents how babies fit inside the womb just moments before.
Marry’s experience is that, “The babies are mostly totally relaxed in this pose. They feel secure and comfortable. They are used to being folded up this way the last few weeks.”
But don’t let this restful pose take our focus off the purposeful activity that has gone up until this point in the mother’s womb! Let’s see what the babies themselves have to tell us.
Do people and circumstances wear you out?
“You wonder why it’s so hard to find some peace of mind? Well, peace is hard to come by when you live in a war zone. And like it or not, you are in a war — a very serious one. This war is cosmic in its proportions. It involves God, humans, angels, demons, principalities, powers, nations, and antichrists.” ~John Piper
While it would be an over-estimation of Satan’s power to suppose that he can interact directly with us in a physical sense, an equal and opposite error would be to suppose that he does not have access to our minds. (1)

I am a girl learning to love to do what must be done, and finding that grace is more beautiful each day!
When did we stop liking children? Seriously? Can anyone put their finger on it?
When did our nation adopt this perfect boy-girl, 1.9, family dogma?
